Religious Tolerance in Pennsylvania (Diwali in Downingtown)

Come on: the Commonwealth was founded on religious freedom!

PA Constitution Article I:

     § 3.  Religious freedom.
        All men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship
     Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences;
     no man can of right be compelled to attend, erect or support any
     place of worship, or to maintain any ministry against his
     consent; no human authority can, in any case whatever, control
     or interfere with the rights of conscience, and no preference
     shall ever be given by law to any religious establishments or
     modes of worship.

This came about because I just signed a petition supporting Diwali Celebrations in Downingtown, PA.

Who knows, this could be a big tourist attraction for Downingtown. Whatever, they need to open up for the celebration.

More glamping and campaign furniture

Sporting_Accessories_Product_Categories_J_and_R_Guram_-_2018-02-11_19.45.32The sun may never set on the British Empire in  my mind: especially since deep down I am a Victorian-Edwardian Gent at heart. Not to mention I did get some to the tag ends of the empire growing up.

Anyway, I came upon a purveyor of campaign furniture whilst looking for shooting accessoriesSporting_Accessories_Product_Categories_J_and_R_Guram_-_2018-02-11_19.45.59 (read cheap gun oil bottles of the type a period gent would have had stashed in his shotgun case for those driven shoots for his servant to keep his bespoke shotguns in proper order). Even better the merchant is in Inja and has all the goodies an Empire builder would desire.

Who cares about the guns: he’s got Safari Equipment! While the campaign furniture selection isn’t as extensive as I might like, they do have quite a few nice things to keep the tent from looking too much like one shops at a surplus store.

Ok, I need to add a screen cap of the Campaign Furniture section to show it’s pretty good, but not as good as it probably would have been during the good old days of Empire.  The time when someone couldn’t go abroad, or to battle without taking all the comforts of home: literally.

While not in the heart of Piccadilly or St. James, J & R Guram can be found on the web at:
